13 Coloradans plan to sustain Texas vigil
By The Denver Post
Thirteen Coloradans are driving to Crawford, Texas, today to carry on with Cindy Sheehan's vigil near President Bush's ranch.
Sheehan had been camped outside the ranch since Aug. 6 to protest the war in Iraq after her 24-year-old son, Casey, was killed there.
Sheehan had to leave the vigil Thursday because her mother had a stroke in California.
"We're going to the Bush ranch to stand in the breech for Cindy, and for all the mothers who've needlessly lost their sons and daughters in Iraq," said Karen Trietsch, organizer of the trip. "Now, more than ever, we owe Cindy our support, and we will carry on her courageous vigil. She is brave for personally sacrificing so much to hold the most powerful man on Earth accountable for his actions. Our thoughts and prayers are with her."
